Thesis (M.A.)--Tufts University, 2011
Given the urgent need for climate change adaptation, especially in developing countries, there is an increasingly acknowledged role for the private sector to be involved. This thesis explores one possible way in which the private sector can contribute to adaptation efforts: through alignment of companies' corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives with their core competencies to help build adaptive capacity. This conceptual model fits well with community-based adaptation (CBA), a model used to increase adaptive capacity at a local scale. This thesis investigates the feasibility of this concept by first considering how the CBA and CSR models can complement one another. Secondly, since this is a novel concept that is not supported by a strong literature, interviews conducted with CBA or CSR professionals and academics are analyzed. Lastly, benefits and limitations of the concept, and support systems that would be required for such a concept to be successfully implemented, are considered
